Zip Facts about Romania:

  • The ruins of the Bran castle, supposed but unlikely home of the Romanian General Vlad Tepes, or Vlad the Impaler, is found in the Transylvanian forest of Romania.  Irish author Bram Stoker based his vampire Count Dracula on this brutal impaler
  • Since 2011, a new tax has been placed on all practitioners of the occult
  • Thousands of stray dogs roam the streets of Romania and are responsible for thousands of dog bites
  • Johnny Weissmuller, the first and my favorite Hollywood Tarzan (1932) was born in Romania
  • My second favorite gymnast, Romania’s Nadia Comaneci, 14, was the first to receive a perfect score of 10 on the uneven bars in the 1976 Montreal Olympic Games
